We’re thrilled to debut our 2014 year in review! Thanks to you, 2014 was full of great moments and amazing work. We can’t wait to see what you have in store for us in 2015!

Year in Review

 

Introducing Creative Talent Search

Connecting creative talent with the world’s best opportunities.

Today, we’re excited to announce the launch of Creative Talent Search,  a new product to connect creatives across the globe with job opportunities from top brands and companies. Creative companies and hiring managers will have access to powerful new tools to discover and engage with the talent they need.

Any hiring manager using Creative Talent Search will be able to use advanced discovery tools to find the right talent for their job. (Finding experts in Photoshop who live in the Bay Area and have worked in automotive design is easier than ever!) Our custom algorithms recommend candidates for the role and get smarter the more the system is used. And of course, the public post advertises the job to the millions of creatives on Behance.

These are unparalleled features for a hiring manager —but the real benefits go to the creatives themselves. Our work with creative teams and hiring managers will bring you more opportunities. Already, tens of thousands of creatives whose work is on Behance have been contacted by recruiters. Our launching Creative Talent Search furthers two key parts of our mission: ensuring you continue to get the attribution for the work you’ve done, and giving you more access to the opportunities you deserve.

Now, more than ever, what’s on your Behance Portfolio will help you get discovered. To optimize your portfolio, we suggest completing your Work Experience section and filling out additional information in Project Settings like clients and agency info, tools used, and tags. And, participate in Community Curation: We think the best curators are Creatives themselves. Behance members get more exposure and opportunity as their work is appreciated by more people, and by other “highly appreciated” members in their field.

Most Appreciated Projects: Monthly Roundup

Appreciations are a way to send genuine kudos to another creative professional on Behance. This is our community’s way of curating the network, so that the best projects gain the most exposure. Here’s a look at two of the most appreciated projects on Behance this month:


The stair truck returns! A project filled with “Greatest Rides” from film and TV, from Dumb & Dumber to Back To the Future and Beyond. Kudos, Ido Yehimovitz.


Tom Anders Watkins of the UK’s super-popular animal logo exploration. In his words: “exploring ways in which logos can be formed using only basic shapes nd minimalist techniques.”
